The FIRST Major all-star event of the college football post-season, top college senior players, selected by a panel of football experts, will be invited to our 2022 College Gridiron Showcase & Symposium to be held January 8th through 12th, 2022 in Fort Worth, Texas. Since our 2015 inaugural event, more than 600 CGS participants have been offered pro opportunities. At the 2021 College Gridiron Showcase, scouts from 30 of the 32 NFL teams, CFL teams, and other professional leagues were on hand to evaluate and meet with our players. In total, participants had the opportunity to show their stuff to more than120 professional scouts! The first all-star event to implement an OTA format, CGS showcases players through practices and a controlled scrimmage with professional coaches. Players will also perform individual and team drills, participate in 1-on-1s, attend meetings, and, in many cases have the opportunity for personal interviews with scouts and executives. In addition to exposure to scouts, CGS provides participants with a strong professional football education component that includes mentoring, life coaching, and seminars that will benefit them as they move forward in their professional lives in or outside of football. Seminars related to financial education, the life of a professional athlete, and on- and off-field player expectations are offered. Family seminars are also available.
